As the centrist of firefighting, I believe we should not set buildings on fire. This shows how compassionate I am, but I'm also very pragmatic, which is why I recognize that once a building is already burning, it's not practical to put it out.

@June for me, this is part of why it’s been so challenging to figure out what’s actually going on in the world… i get that the new york times isn’t ‘the bible’ and primarily works for people in power, and jacobin used to be ok but now isn’t, etc, & what’s gradually happened is that i went from being someone who read tons of news/opinion and enjoyed the illusion of feeling informed, to someone who reads almost no news and stares grimly at a dog eared paperback of manufacturing consent ):

you need to have the mental toughness to not let it fuck with your confidence, despite marinating in an atmosphere that tells you you’re lesser than your peers 40+ hours a week. peers whose work you look at and think: why? idk if people can imagine that. it’s very hard.
